Happy Easter – Buona Pasqua – Joyeuses Pâques

The Gospel of Mark 16: 1-8

And the sabbath being [now] past, Mary of Magdala, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, bought aromatic spices that they might come and embalm him.
And very early on the first [day] of the week they come to the sepulchre, the sun having risen.
And they said to one another, Who shall roll us away the stone out of the door of the sepulchre?
And when they looked, they see that the stone has been rolled [away], for it was very great.
And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right, clothed in a white robe, and they were amazed and alarmed;
but he says to them, Be not alarmed. Ye seek Jesus, the Nazarene, the crucified one. He is risen, he is not here; behold the place where they had put him.
But go, tell his disciples and Peter, he goes before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him, as he said to you.
And they went out, and fled from the sepulchre. And trembling and excessive amazement possessed them, and they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid.

  1. Today is Jesus’ day. May we remember his basic teachings and recognize the manipulation of them by organized Christian religions.

  2. Someone and I are each playing the Easter hymn we grew up with. Mine is “Christ the Lord is risen today”. His is some baptist thing.
